The Pandora May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05) feels quite dainty with its delicate beaded bale and heart shape. Interestingly the border of the love heart is actually made up of two lines of silver pearls. A fact I didn’t take notice of from the Birthstone Heart Dangle stock images.

Previous Pandora Birthstone jewellery collections have featured genuine gem stones. However in recent Birthstone pieces Pandora have used man-made stones. The May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05) has a rainforest green man-made stone. Its shade is an exact match to the Pandora Disney Jasmine’s Signature Colour Murano (791648).

The gorgeous green stone is set within a square claw which hangs with the centre of the May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05). Light passes through both the sides and back of the claw, making the stone gleam brightly.

A polished buff top-cut finish provides really makes the birthstone glow and compliments the silver beads perfectly.

The May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05) is engraved with the normal ‘S925 ALE’ Pandora silver hallmark. It took me a little while to locate it as it is hidden on the inside of the bale.

I am still obsessed with my Pandora O Pendant (398296) and enjoy playing with it creating new designs. As the May Birthstone Heart (798854C05) is a dangle charm I was eager to construct an interesting styling on the O Pendant!

Instead of using my Small Silver O Pendant (398296) in the normal way, I threaded the May Birthstone Heart through the O Pendant with the heart hanging inside of the circle. Handing above on a silver Pandora Necklace Chain (590200) are the Tire Spacer (790244), Teal Faceted Murano (791606) and Dreamy Dragonfly (797025CZ) charm. The silver dots on the Tires Spacer beautifully emphasis the beading detail on the May Birthstone Heart. Although the Disney Jasmine’s Signature Colour Murano (791648) is an exact colour match for the May Birthstone Heart, I adore the contrast of the cut glass on the Teal Faceted Murano alongside the smooth Purely Pandora design.

Style 2: May Flowers

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.

Sweet April showers,
Do spring May flowers.”

In my second styling with May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm I chose complimentary florals in pretty shades set on the iconic Moments Snake Chain Bracelet (590702HV). The gorgeous Enchanted Garden (797014) and Wild Flowers (791638CZ) Murano charms mimic fragrant May blooms with the May Birthstone Heart charm at the centre. Matching shades also appear in the delicate Pink (791665) and Purple Field of Flowers (791667) Murano charms. Meanwhile the retired Vintage Butterfly (791255CZ) and the Home Sweet Heart (798284CZ) are on either side of the bracelet to create symmetry.

Read my review of the Home Sweet Heart (798284CZ) for more inspirational stylings.

My verdict on the Pandora May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm? It’s your birthright!

Summary

The May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05) is good value, priced at a reasonable £30. As a pendant charm it is also very versatile as it can be worn on both necklaces and bracelets. Its simple design will also suit most stylings and as it doesn’t have a big wow factor it won’t be overpowering. Overall it is a beautiful piece!

The May Birthstone Heart Dangle Charm (798854C05) is £30 and available from the Pandora UK eStore.

I like how you have styled it, your photography and designs are beautiful. I saw this new birthday line in person at my local store. The dangles and rings seemed so lightweight compared to my birthday bloom collection, like it could get bent easily. Personally I decided to pass.

Hi Panda,

Thanks for the comment, I suppose they could bend if you got them caught in a vice, but I think you would have to apply some serious pressure to them to do them some real damage in real life. I agree that these designs are light and simple and I think they are designed as such to complement a O Pendant or a necklace.

Have a great day,

Dora

Ciao Dora
che belli questi progetti.
Geniale il modo in cui hai usato il Pandora O!
Questi cuori pendenti sembrano davvero interessanti per dare un tocco di colore.
Ti auguro una buona giornata

Wow, me encanta como utilizaste el collar O con tu diseño, te quedó genial. Mi mes de nacimiento es abril, lástima que el color de mi mes es un poco “insípido” pero igual este charm está en mi lista de deseos. Feliz fin de semana smile

Hi Priscilla,

Thanks for he comment. My birth month is not May but that is the one I reviewed. I think if people want to collect Pandora by birth month that is great, if you pick your own colour that is fine too.

Have a great day,
